Malaysia is ranked 9th on the list, according to the poll. Besides the friendliness of its people, another criterion for judging a country's friendliness is how simple it is for foreigners to live, adapt and integrate themselves in the local environment.
The HSBC poll surveyed more than 4000 people from more than 100 countries between April and June 2010. Respondents were asked to answer a series of questions, like "where to find local friends', "how simple it is to adapt to and integrate into its culture". 8% of those surveyed said English was their mother tongue.
The top 10 friendliest countries are:
3. South Africa
4. United States
8. Great Britain
WELCOME to MALAYSIA...... we are here to be your friends...
